Modern Office

Old styles of office layouts are going the way of the dinosaurs!

In the past, you would see uniform cubicles for office workers, who were effectively pinned to one machine in the workplace, with separated offices for management often adjoining the main workspace.

Innovative tech companies have made headlines over the last decade for their disavowel of old-style office layouts and for including more workstation options for employees, better formulated collaboration areas, and even space for rest and relaxation.

The evolution of the workspace in both technological and inter-generational terms has driven this shift in organisation. Technologically, a modern office makes it easy for employees to take their work with them. This allows them to be able to choose from many workstations, whether standing, sitting or in a collaboration or sound-proof area.

The changing face of the workforce is also a factor in this, a generation of young people, millennials, are increasingly entering workplaces and businesses need to adjust to accommodate their specific needs and viewpoints.

Millenials are a mobile generation, expecting and able to move freely at work. Social barriers have also become less defined over time, and Managers in the modern workplace feel the need to be working in amongst their team, as opposed to having a separate office.

The increase in productivity that can come with modernised workspaces can be significant, and DB Interiors can help to understand and make the decisions that will continue to drive your business into the future.
